This is the presentation prepared by Dr. Angela Carpenter in the European Centre of Excellence. The document was prepared to address the importance of the marine ports and transport to the economy of the European Union including the geographical scope. The author has also covered the known threats to maritime security, supplementing the text with several examples.
In addition to that, particular attention has been paid to the practical measures and cooperative activities within the European Union. We know that almost ninety percent of the whole foreign state of the European Union is seaborne; there are millions of tons transported by sea. More than four hundred million passengers travel through the European sea ports every year.
This compact yet quite informative and useful publication will assist not only mariners but in fact any people interested in the contemporary maritime shipping industry – they will find some good information with the focus made on the security which is obviously a matter of utmost importance. Such aspects of the maritime security as terrorism, drug trafficking and illegal immigration, narco-terrorism and other critical topics have been addressed.
